"Monmouth College proposes to provide young nnen and women with 
an understanding of the world in which they live, in all of its most 
general aspects; 

"To provide them with an intelligent understanding and compre- 
hension of the basic structure of the world of physical nature, the 
world of living organisms from the lowest to the highest forms, the 
world of human society and institutions, the world of ideas including 
the products of both imagination and conceptual thinking, and the 
world of values; 

"To provide them with a mature grasp of some one field of study, 
and to assure a moderate degree of skill in the use of the intellect. 

"Monmouth affirms that such a course of study is the only sound 
foundation for an effective life in modern society, both as a necessary 
preparation for further training in any occupation or profession that 
involves the exercise of personal responsibility, and for any function 
in any phase of human life requiring judgment and understanding in 
addition to mere skill." 

Monmouth College, founded in 1853, is a coeducational liberal arts 
college affiliated with the United Presbyterian Church, U. S. A. The 
college's four-year course of study under the three-term, three-course 
curriculum leads to the Bachelor of Arts degree.

THE ACADEMIC PROGRAM 

The Monmouth College faculty adopted a new curriculum for the college 
effective Septemher, 1962. Under this new educational program, the nine- 
month academic year is divided into three terms of approximately 11 
weeks each. 

Normally, students register for three full term courses each term for 
a total of nine term courses during the academic year. Thirty-.six term 
courses are required for graduation. Freshman and sophomores are 
required to take physical education each term without credit toward 
graduation. 

A full term course normally meets four times weekly for 50-minute 
periods, exclusive of laboratory sessions. All courses are regarded as 
term courses with the exception of fractional courses in studio art, applied 
music and dramatics. 

Students may register for 10 courses during the regular academic year 
with the approval of their academic adviser. In this case students are 
permitted to register for a fourth (full) course during one term of the 
academic year if no fractional courses are taken during that term and if 
a 3.0 (B) or better grade average has been achieved in the two preceding 
terms. 

Students who achieve a 3.0 (B) or better grade average during the 
preceding two terms may register for more than 10 courses during an 
academic year with the permission of the academic dean and their aca- 
demic adviser. In no case is a student permitted to register for more 
than four courses during any term or for more than 11 courses, including 
fractional courses, during the year. 

For graduation a student must attain or surpass a grade-point average 
of 2.0 (C). 

To qualify for the degree of Bachelor of Arts a candidate must meet 
certain specifications in quantity, quality, distribution, field of concentra- 
tion, independent reading, and in the senior comprehensive examination. 

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

I. Credit in a total of 36 term courses. 
II. A grade-point average of 2.0 (C) or better in all courses. 

III. Distribution of 14 term courses in specified divisions and completion of 
six terms of satisfactory work in physical education. 

IV. A field of concentration consisting of either (1) a departmental major 
presenting a minimum of seven term courses from the major depart- 
ment and a minimum of five term courses in related fields chosen 
from those specified by the major department: or (2) a topical major 
of at least 12 term courses approved by the curriculum committee. 
All courses in the field of concentration require a grade-point average 
of 2.5 or better. 

V. A passing grade in the senior comprehensive examination. 
VI. Satisfactory completion of a program of independent reading includ- 
ing a general reading and comprehensive reading program. 
VII. The senior year must be spent in residence at Monmouth College. 
(No exceptions to these regulations will be made unless authorized by the 
faculty.) 



DISTRIBUTION REQUIREMENTS 

The distribution requirements are intended to help the student attain a 
broad and comprehensive acquaintance with the basic characteristics of 
the world in which we live. These requirements are intended to help the 
student attain familiarity with the tools of the intellect including (1) the 
experimental methods, (2) the method of empirical generalization, (3) 
language and (4) the method of formal analysis. Distribution require- 
ments should be fulfilled within the first two years, if possible. 

Students may satisfy any of these requirements by passing an examina- 
tion sufficiently comprehensive to test their knowledge of the work pre- 
sented in the required course or courses. 

The same requirements for graduation will apply to transfer students 
except that some special arrangements may be made regarding the date at 
which the requirements of the first two years will be satisfied. These re- 
quirements should be completed within a year of the initial date of reg- 
istration. 

No course except a second-year foreign language course shall be used 
to satisfy both distribution and concentration requirements. 

DIVISION I 
HUMANITIES 

Art, Music, or Theater Arts (Speech): One term course (or equivalent) 

English: Two term courses 

English (literature), History or Philosophy: Two term courses chosen from 

separate fields 
Foreign Language: Two term courses (beyond 101 and 102) 
Religion or Bible: One term course

DIVISION II 
SOCIAL SCIENCES 

Two term courses in separate fields chosen from the departments of eco- 
nomics, government, psychology or sociology. 

DIVISION III 
NATURAL SCIENCES AND MATHEMATICS

geology, physics, or mathematics, including a sequence of two term courses 
in a laboratory science. 

DIVISION IV 
PHYSICAL EDUCATION 

Freshmen and sophomores are required to complete six terms of satis- 
factory work in physical education unless excused by the director of the 
college health service for medical reasons. A proficiency rating for each 
term course will be given. 

Passing a swimming test or receiving credit for a swimming course is 
a graduation requirement for all students. 



FIELD OF CONCENTRATION 

A field of concentration shall consist of (1) a departmental major and 
related courses or (2) a topical major. All courses in the field of concen- 
tration shall be of grade-point 2.0 or better and the grade-point average 
must be 2.5 or better. 

DEPARTMENTAL MAJOR 

A departmental major shall consist of at least seven term courses chosen 
from the major department and at least five term courses or related courses 
chosen from those specified by the major department. The work in the 
field of concentration during the junior or senior years shall include some 
form of individualized study. Each student must give positive evidence 
of his competence in his field of concentration by means of a compre- 
hensive examination. 

TOPICAL MAJOR 

A topical major shall consist of at least 12 term courses chosen from 
different departments as a group of studies linked together by a special 
theme or field of interest. The program for the topical major must be 
approved by the curriculum committee and shall be under the direction of 
an adviser appointed by that committee. The work in the field of con- 
centration during the junior and senior years shall include some form of 
individualized study. Each student must give positive evidence of compe- 
tence in his field of concentration by means of a comprehensive examination. 

SENIOR COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION 

A comprehensive examination in the field of concentration is required of 
each candidate for the degree. This examination will be in three parts: 

1. The Graduate Record examination, to be taken during the senior year. 

2. A written essay examination of four hours, consisting either of one 
four-hour paper or two two-hour papers on questions which require 
a comprehensive grasp of the problems of the field and a broad acquaint- 
ance with its literature. 

3. An oral examination (where not more than three candidates will be 
examined at one time) by a committee composed of one representative 
of the candidate's major field, one representative of his related field, 
and one to be nominated by the candidate from a department outside 
the field of concentration. 

The second and third parts of the examination must be taken during 
the last two terms of the candidate's residence as a regular student. The 
examination will be judged as a whole, and will be graded Honor, Pass or 
Fail. A grade of Pass is required for graduation; a grade of Honor is re- 
quired for honors at graduation. A candidate who fails the examination 
may apply for one re- examination, but a second failure will be final. 

INDEPENDENT READING 

All students are required to pursue a program of independent reading dur- 
ing their period of enrollment at Monmouth College. The reading program 



6 MONMOUTH COLLEGE • MONMOUTH, ILLINOIS 

is divided into two parts: part one, entitled general reading, covers the 
freshman year, part two, entitled comprehensive reading, covers the soph- 
omore, junior and senior years. 

General Reading Program 

The general reading program envisages a lively acquaintance with and 
understanding of broadly-selected writings which are of great worth and 
significance to the educated person and his world. 

The general reading program is administered by the general reading 
program committee of the faculty. This committee ascertains from every 
faculty-member those books which are worthy of inclusion in the general 
reading list. The committee determines what writings shall be included 
in the program. Each year review and revision, if required, shall be made 
by the faculty committee. The student will be encouraged to begin his 
reading immediately upon acceptance as a student of the college. Satis- 
factory performance is required for sophomore standing. 

Comprehensive Reading Program 

The comprehensive reading program administered by each department in- 
cludes selected writings related to the student's field of concentration. A 
broad bibliographical acquaintance with outstanding works in the field 
plus a first-hand knowledge of selected works in concept and import will 
be required. 

The senior comprehensive examination includes the work of the compre- 
hensive reading program. 

The comprehensive reading lists are prepared by the several departments. 

SEMINARS AND INDIVIDUAL STUDY 

Monmouth College requires some form of individualized study by each 
student during the junior or senior years. The phenomenon of individual 
study at Monmouth is manifested in several ways. For some individual 
study is independent study; for others it is self-directed study; for still 
others it is study done outside the usual academic setting — work done 
off the campus. The essential element is the independence of student 
learning. The focus is upon the individual instead of the group. 

Every academic department has a departmental seminar program in 
the major field for the junior and senior years. 

The inclusion of seminars and individualized study introduces greater 
flexibility into the academic program and reflects the purposes of liberal 
arts higher education in effective ways. 



ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 

ATTENDANCE 

At Monmouth College, responsibility for class attendance is placed upon 
the student except as this is limited by the regulations which follow: 

1. Courses of study at Monmouth College are planned and organized upon 
the assumption that the student will be in regular attendance. The stu- 
dent is responsible for all work covered in the course, including lectures, 
class discussions, assignments of any kind and all examinations. How- 
ever, students need not make application to have absences excused and 
need not make any explanation of class absences. 

2. Freshmen will be permitted no voluntary absences during the first term. 
During the second and third term, this will apply only to freshmen who 
failed to earn a grade-point average of at least 2.0. All unexcused ab- 
sences for freshmen who are not permitted to have voluntary absences 
must be explained to the personnel dean concerned no later than 24 
hours after the student returns to class. 

3. Attendance is required at the last meeting of a class before, and at the 
first meeting of a class after, a college vacation. Students who have 
urgent reasons for absences immediately before or after vacations may 
be excused by the registrar. Students with unexcused class absences on 
these days will be charged a $10 fee for each class missed. 

4. A student whose record in a course is suffering because of frequent 
absences may be required by his instructor or the academic dean to give 
up the privileges of these regulations and, during the remainder of the 
term, explain all absences. This action may be taken at any time dur- 
ing a term. 

CHAPELS AND CONVOCATIONS 

Chapels and convocations will be held each Tuesday at 9 a. m. and each 
Thursday at 10 a. m. 

Monthly vesper services will be held the first Sunday of each month. 

1. Students will be required to attend a specified number of events each 
term. These will include chapels, Concert-Lecture Series, convocations, 
programs, some faculty recitals, one major play each term and Vespers. 

2. Chapel programs will be religious in character, while convocations will 
be cultural. 

3. The schedule of events will be announced at the beginning of each term. 

4. A two-hour period will be set aside for Honors Convocations. There 
will be no other chapel or convocation that week. Attendance at the 
Honors Convocation will count as two of the required number of events. 

5. There will be no excuses granted for any cause except prolonged illness. 



8 MONMOUTH COLLEGE • MONMOUTH, ILLINOIS 

REGISTRATION 

In the spring of each year students will register in advance for all three 
terms of the next academic year. New students, in consultation with the 
personnel dean concerned, will choose their courses during the summer 
preceding their entrance to the college. 

All changes in registration require written permission of the instructor 
for the courses involved and the student's adviser. A fee of $5 is charged 
for each course change made after the first week of classes. No student 
will be permitted to add a course to his schedule after the first week of 
classes and any course dropped after the second week of classes will 
incur a grade of F except for cases of illness or other circumstances beyond 
the control of the student. 

GRADES 

Academic work is graded at Monmouth College as follows: 
A 
B 

C + 

c 

D 

F Failure 

I Incomplete (Grade Deferred) 

In Progress 

W Withdrawal 

W-F Failure because of withdrawal 
The mark I signifies work in the course is incomplete due to illness or 
circumstances beyond the control of the student, or where the instructor 
feels further evaluation is needed before the grade is determined. Unless 
the I is removed within the term following that in which it was given, the 
grade automatically becomes an F. The mark W signifies withdrawal and 
is given when a student withdraws from a course with the approval of the 
instructor involved, the student's adviser and the academic dean, provided 
the student is passing in the course at the time of withdrawal. The mark 
W will not be recorded after the end of the first week of classes except for 
reasons of illness or circumstances beyond the control of the stildent. 

In seminars and other independent study courses where the work of 
the course cannot be completed in one term, the grade "In Progress" may 
be given for such uncompleted work, said grade not to be used in calcu- 
lating the grade-point average. The appropriate letter grade shall be 
given upon completion of this work, which in no case shall be later than 
the end of the next succeeding term. 

GRADE-POINT AVERAGE 

All students in a class are ranked according to their work. Each teacher 
determines the rank of his own students in his own way. The following 
grades are used: 

A = 4 grade-points per term course 

B = 3 grade-points per term course 

C-f =2.5 grade-points per term course 

C = 2 grade-points per term course 

D = 1 grade-point per term course 
The term "average" is determined by dividing the total grade-points 
earned during the term by the number of term courses taken. The cumu- 
lative average is the total of all grade-points earned, divided by the total 
number of term courses taken. 



MONMOUTH COLLEGE • MONMOUTH, ILLINOIS 9 

ACADEMIC PROBATION 

A student who in any term fails to earn a grade-point average of at least 
1.6 is placed on probation for the following term. 

A student may remove himself from probation by earning at least a 
1.6 grade-point average for the term during which he is on probation and 
by satisfying the cumulative grade-point average requirement. 

A student who is on probation for the first time and fails to remove 
himself from probation at the end of that term may be required to with- 
draw from college for at least one term. The academic dean, in consulta- 
tion with the Scholarships and Admissions committee, determines whether 
or not withdrawal will be required. 

A student who has been placed on probation a second time and has 
failed to remove himself from probation by the end of that term shall be 
requested to withdraw from the college and cannot apply for re-enrollment 
for one academic year. After a year's absence from the campus, a request 
to re-enroll may be made to the Scholarship and Admissions Committee. 

CUMULATIVE GRADE-POINT AVERAGE 

A student with one through six term courses whose cumulative grade - 
point average is less than 1.6 is on probation. A student with seven 
through 18 term courses whose cumulative average is less than 1.8 is on 
probation. A student with more than 18 term courses whose cumulative 
average is less than 2.0 is on probation. 

The cumulative grade-point average is computed on the basis of all 
credit courses in which the student has been enrolled. 

DISCIPLINARY PROBATION 

A student who is dismissed because of disciplinary reasons will be given 
a failing grade, if failing, and a "W" if passing at the time of dismissal, 
with the proviso that he must take the course over upon readmission to 
the college. 

CLASSIFICATION 

The student who has nine term courses of college credit and a grade-point 
average of 1.8 is classified as a sophomore; 18 term courses and a grade- 
point average of 2.0, a junior; 27 term courses and a grade-point average 
of 2.0, a senior. 

DEGREES 

The degree regularly conferred is Bachelor of Arts. Candidates for a de- 
gree shall make formal application to the registrar one year in advance 
of their expected graduation date. The course may be completed at the 
close of any term but the formal graduation will occur at the commence- 
ment in June. The senior year must be spent in residence at Monmouth 
College. 

HONORS AT GRADUATION 

Honors at graduation are either summa cum laude, magna cum laude or 
cum laude. The student is ranked upon his own merit, not upon compara- 
tive standing. To be eligible for honors at graduation a student must have 
been in residence at least six terms and have achieved a grade of Honor in 
the comprehensive examination. To be eligible for honors summa cum 



10 MONMOUTH COLLEGE • MONMOUTH, ILLINOIS 

laude the grade-point average for the work taken in residence must be 
3.9 or higher. To be eHgible for honors magna cum laude, the grade-point 
average for the work taken in residence must be 3.75 or higher. To be 
eHgible for honors cum laude, the grade-point average for the work taken 
in residence must be 3.5 or higher. 

CREDIT BY EXAMINATION 

students may secure course credit by passing an examination administered 
by the department concerned and sufficiently comprehensive to prove 
mastery of the course. Such credit may not be used to void necessary 
admission units. Prior approval to take such an examination must be se- 
cured from the instructor administering the examination, the department 
head, the student's adviser, and the academic dean. The fee for this 
special examination is $25.

HONORS AT ENTRANCE 

In order to recognize and reward outstanding achievement of high school 
seniors applying for admission to Monmouth College, a program of Honors- 
at-Entrance has been established. A student may qualify for Honors-at-

11 



12 MONMOUTH COLLEGE • MONMOUTH, ILLINOIS 

High school seniors who rank in the upper 10 per cent of their grad- 
uating class will receive Honors-at-Entrance, including a certificate of 
merit signed by the president and issued by the college prior to the be- 
ginning of the academic year and listing as an Honors-at-Entrance student 
in appropriate college publications. 



HONOR SCHOLARS 

Students who receive Honors-at-Entrance may continue their status as 
Honor Scholars in succeeding years by exhibiting personal and social char- 
acter satisfactory to the Honor Scholars committee, by carrying extra- 
curricular responsibility and by maintaining the following grade-point 
averages: at end of freshman year, 2.75; at end of sophomore year, 3.0; 
at end of junior year, 3.5. Maintaining these standards will make the stu- 
dent eligible for Honors at Graduation. 



ADVANCED PLACEMENT 

College credit, advanced placement and reduction of the distribution re- 
quirements may be granted to entering students who have demonstrated 
sufficiently strong preparation. 

The advanced placement examinations of the College Entrance Exam- 
ination Board, tests given at Monmouth during Orientation week, and 
school records may be used by the department in making such a recom- 
mendation. 

Application for advanced placement should be made to the academic 
dean. Credit may be recorded if it does not void necessary admission 
units. The granting of credit is authorized by the academic dean upon 
recommendation of the instructor who gives the course, the head of the 
department concerned and with the approval of the faculty adviser. 

Credit for one or more term courses is granted, and advanced placement 
at an appropriate level is offered, to any entering students who have 
demonstrated college level comprehension in one or more subjects. This 
credit satisfies any of the requirements for the degree to the same extent 
as if earned for courses taken at Monmouth. It may not be substituted 
for any course subsequently failed.

FINANCIAL AID 

PROCEDURE 

Students who meet the admission standards of the college may secure 
educational cost assistance in meeting their college expenses if a need is 
shown. Educational cost need is the difference between one year's educa- 
tional cost (tuition, books, board, room, etc.) and the student's resources 
for the same period (aid from parents, guardian, relatives, personal savings 
and vacation earnings, other scholarships and awards, etc.). 

To determine the need factor the student must complete, with his parents, 
a College Scholarship Service (CSS) form when he applies for financial 
aid. On this form he and his parents supply information about the fam- 
il3^'s income, assets, debts and other conditions affecting this factor in the 
student's resources. The completed form is sent by the applicant to 
College Scholarship Service, Box 175, Princeton, New Jersey. CSS forms 
may be secured from the college office of Student Aid and Placement. 

CSS computes an estimate of the family's financial means and furnishes 
this information to the college. The estimate states how much the family 
might reasonably be expected to pay toward the student's college expenses 
during the year. The CSS estimate and other information the college 
may have determines the amount and kinds of aid which may be given. 

TYPES OF FINANCIAL AID 

Monmouth College believes that the assumption of a reasonable amount 
of business- related responsibility during the student years develops maturity 
and post-college adjustment. For this reason every effort is made to com- 
bine the following kinds of educational cost assistance in meeting a student's 
need factor: 

SCHOLARSHIPS, GRANTS-IN-AID AND LOANS 

Monmouth's many awards of this type are listed elsewhere in this catalog. 

Scholarships 

Freshmen awards are made to students who rank in the upper one-fourth 
of their high school class and whose ability, character and promise of 
achievement are outstanding. Size of the scholarship depends upon need, 
rank in class and activity record. 

Upperclass students who have maintained a cumulative grade-point 
average of at least 3.0 in the preceding year, have a need, and whose 
ability, character and record indicate continued high achievement are 
eligible for scholarships. 

Gran+s-ln-Aid 

These awards are made to those students with financial need who do not 
qualify academically for scholarships. 

Freshmen, to qualify for a grant-in-aid, must rank in the upper half of 
their high school class, show promise of being able to pass college-level 
work and have a record showing good character, some leadership potential 
and participation in extra-curricular activities. 

Upperclass students must have a cumulative grade-point average of at 
least 2.0 in the preceding year and a previous college record indicating 
good character and conduct and continued satisfactory achievement.

18 MONMOUTH COLLEGE • MONMOUTH, ILLINOIS 

Student Loans 

The usual student loan fund is a revolving type wherein the repayment 
goes back into the fund for reloaning to other students with financial need. 

Interest rates are usually low (3 to 4 per cent) and repayment does not 
begin until the student ceases full-time attendance. Repayment periods 
vary with the different student loan funds. For example, the National De- 
fense Education Act Student Loan Program provides one year of grace 
after the student ceases being a full-time student. No interest accrues dur- 
ing this period and no repayments are due. 

Interest begins with the second year and then the student has 10 years 
to repay, with deferment of interest and repayment of principal for up to 
three years if the student attends graduate school or enters the armed 
services. The act requires that special consideration be given to students 
planning to teach or those who specialize in modern foreign languages or 
science. Other students become eligible for this type of loan after the 
special consideration cases have been completed. A student going into 
teaching may have 10 per cent of his loan cancelled each year for a maxi- 
mum of five years. 

In addition to the loan funds administered by Monmouth College, a list 
of other scholarship and loan funds administered independently are on 
file in the student financial aid office and information is available to those 
who wish to make their own arrangements for educational cost financing. 



United Student Aid Funds 

Also available through Monmouth College are loans granted through the 
United Student Aid Funds, Inc. This is a national, non-profit, tax-exempt 
corporation established to endorse bank loans to deserving college stu- 
dents who could not otherwise obtain such loans. Details in regard to 
procedures may be obtained at the college office of student aid and place- 
ment. 



Part-Time Employment 

Although there may be a slight variation in the number of jobs available 
to students on the campus and in the community from year to year, the 
number, generally, is slightly more than 200. Campus jobs include secre- 
tarial-type work, building and campus maintenance, switchboard operation, 
residence hall desk duty, library clerical work, residence hall counseling, 
food service duties and messenger services. The food services and residence 
hall positions pay from one-third to full board. Other jobs are at hourly 
rates ranging from 75 cents to $1.25 per hour. 

Student assistantships in the various departments provide a limited num- 
ber of jobs to upperclass students recommended by department heads. 

The college feels that part-time employment demands are reasonable in 
the number of hours per week required (this varies with jobs), and expects 
the student to make whatever adjustments are required to accommodate 
his work, study and social program to the end that his academic program 
does not suffer. 

The college student aid office also lists community part-time jobs and 
notifies those students who have indicated an interest in part-time work. 
The college student aid office does not list jobs with excessive hourly de- 
mands, unreasonable night-time hours or environmental factors that are 
undesirable. 



MONMOUTH COLLEGE • MONMOUTH, ILLINOIS 19 

GENERAL 

It is Monmouth's desire to provide educational cost assistance to every 
student having a financial need who possesses character, ability, promise 
and scholastic aptitude and is willing to make reasonable sacrifices to 
attain his goal of graduating from Monmouth College. 

All financial aid is awarded with the understanding that the individual 
is a full-time student and will allow sufficient time to study consistently. 
Failure to maintain the required scholastic average will result in cancella- 
tion of the award. All awards (except for mid-year entrants) are made 
for a one-year period and one-third the award is deducted from the stu- 
dent's tuition account each term. All awards are acted upon by the schol- 
arship committee or by special committees, if required by the donors of 
special funds. 

Students holding awards must reapply before March 15 each year in 
order to obtain financial aid for the following academic year. 

Students receiving aid may not own or operate cars on the Monmouth 
campus. 

Students receiving financial aid from the college, except those whose 
homes are in Monmouth, are required to live in college housing. 



PROCEDURE FOR APPLICATION 

Freshmen and Transfer Students 

New students applying for any of the above forms of financial aid must 
first apply for admission on the usual forms and be accepted. Next, the 
parents of the applicant must complete, sign and forward to Box 176, 
Princeton, New Jersey, the College Scholarship Service "Confidential State- 
ment" in support of request for aid. "Confidential Statement" forms may 
be obtained through your high school. 



Upperclass Students 

Upperclass students applying for financial aid must complete the CSS 
"Confidential Statement" which may b^^ obtained at the college student aid 
office. Students receiving aid must reapply by March 15 each year in 
order to obtain financial aid for the following academic year. 



HONOR SCHOLARSHIP COMPETITION 

Five scholarships with a value of up to $4,800 ($1,200 per year) are 
awarded each year to winners of the Monmouth College Honor Scholarship 
Competition. High school seniors ranking in the upper 20 per cent of 
their class and recommended by their principal or counselor are eligible ^o 
compete. Winners will be selected on the basis of test results and financial 
need. Those winners who do not have financial need will be given $100 
honorary awards. Candidates who do not win Honor Scholarships will be 
considered for other scholarships granted by Monmouth College through 
regular scholarship funds. Further information may be obtained by writing 
the director of admissions.

EAST ASIAN STUDIES PROGRAM 

Cecil C. Brett, Director. Associate Professor 
of Government and History 
The Monmouth College Board of Directors authorized the establishment 
of an East Asian Studies program effective September, 1963. This de- 
cision was based on the assumption that study of peoples and cultures 
outside the Western world is a necessary dimension of a liberal education. 
The underlying objective of the program is to broaden the opportunities 
for study of non-Western societies available to the entire range of Mon- 
mouth students. 

The first stage of this new dimension to the academic program makes 
modest provision to encourage students as a normal part of their aca- 
demic course work to come in contact with some ideas and institutions 
of Asian civilizations as well as with some of the literary and philoso- 
phical work of the oriental traditions. Each course is designed to supply 
the insights of a particular discipline to non-Western societies of east Asia.

SPECIAL STUDY PROGRAMS 

ENGINEERING 

Students interested in engineering may take advantage of the binary pro- 
gram sponsored by Monmouth College in cooperation with Case Institute 
of Technology, Cleveland, Ohio. 

Briefly, this program calls for a three-year program of liberal arts study 
at Monmouth, followed by two years of engineering work at Case Institute. 
Upon completion of the five-year program the student will receive degrees 
from Monmouth and the engineering school. 

The binary program is designed to provide the engineering student with 
all the best features of two types of educational work — that of the liberal 
arts college and the technical engineering school. This combination is of 
great importance, for in an increasing degree men who have attained em- 
inence as engineers are required to have a broad background in liberal 
education to carry out their duties as executives in engineering work. 

Students may also attend Monmouth College three years and transfer 
to the Illinois Institute of Technology or University of Illinois. If they 
follow the program outlined below they may receive an A.B. from Mon- 
mouth at the time of graduation from the engineering school.

WASHINGTON SEMESTER 

Students who have demonstrated exceptional academic ability are selected 
as candidates for this program. The study program at American University 
in Washington, D. C, is designed to bring superior students into contact 
with source materials and government institutions at the nation's capitol. 



68 



MONMOUTH COLLEGE • MONMOUTH, ILLINOIS 69 

In addition to regular study and a research project, students are re- 
quired to participate in the Washington Seminar, a course consisting of a 
series of informal meetings with members of Congress and administration 
officials. Monmouth College offers full credit for work done under this plan. 

JUNIOR YEAR ABROAD 

Monmouth College participates in a variety of programs offering foreign 
study during the junior year. The modern foreign languages department 
has an exchange agreement with Mexico City College where full tuition for 
one term is offered by Mexico City College to any Monmouth College stu- 
dent recommended by the modern foreign languages department. Ex- 
change arrangements have also been made with Universite Laval, Quebec, 
Canada; National University of Mexico, Mexico City; and the University 
of Guadalajara. 

The most extensive "Junior Year Abroad" program is the one sponsored 
by the United Presbyterian Church, U. S. A. Under this program a student 
can study in France, Germany, Ghana, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Lebanon, 
Pakistan, Switzerland and the Philippines. 

Main requisites are a good academic record and a concern for inter- 
national relationships. In som.e countries special language preparation is 
necessary. 

Students can also do independent study under a program arranged by 
the Experiment in International Living. 

Application for any of the "Junior Year Abroad" programs should be 
made early in the sophomore year. Cost is $1,500 to $2,500 per year. 
While Monmouth College does not directly sponsor any of these programs, 
a faculty committee on study overseas maintains contacts with the spon- 
soring organizations and acts as a clearing-house for applications. This 
committee will also assist students who wish to apply directly to foreign 
schools and make independent arrangements. 

ARGONNE SEMESTER 

The Argonne Semester program, adapted to conform to the three-term, 
three-course curriculum, offers an opportunity for outstanding science stu- 
dents to study and do research at Argonne National Laboratory in suburban 
Chicago. Argonne, one of the nation's three major centers for nuclear 
research, is operated by the University of Chicago for the Atomic Energy 
Commission. 

The program provides for 15 weeks of full-credit study and research at 
Argonne. A group of 10 outstanding students in biology, chemistry, physics 
and applied mathematics is selected from the 10 Associated Colleges of the 
Midwest schools twice yearly. 

Students are assigned to Argonne scientists, with whom they work five 
mornings each week as part-time research assistants. They receive tech- 
nician-level pay for a 20-hour work week. Afternoons are spent in sem- 
inars and research conducted by faculty members from the ACM colleges 
in residence at Argonne. 

CRITICAL LANGUAGES 

Through this program, students at Monmouth and 31 other colleges 
and universities may attend Princeton University for instruction in 
Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Persian, Russian and Turkish languages and 



70 MONMOUTH COLLEGE • MONMOUTH, ILLINOIS 

related regional studies in the social sciences and humanities. Under- 
graduates are admitted to Princeton at the end of their sophomore year 
for either one or two years of instruction and will normally return to 
Monmouth as seniors to complete their undergraduate education. Ad- 
mission requirements are a distinguished academic record and one year 
of the critical language to be studied (this requirement may be met by 
an intensive summer course such as those given at Columbia, Harvard, 
Michigan, Stanford, Georgetown, or Yale). 



WILDERNESS FIELD STATION 

A five-week full-credit summer course sponsored by the Associated 
Colleges of the Midwest in the Quetico-Superior region is open to 20 
outstanding biology and geology students annually. Situated near the 
Quetico-Superior Wilderness Research Center, the ACM field station 
uses the resources of the center and emphasizes field studies and in- 
dividual projects. Four faculty-members from the ACM colleges con- 
duct the course. 

URBAN EDUCATION 

This Associated Colleges of the Midwest program to prepare college 
students for teaching careers in urban public schools combines student 
teaching in the Chicago public schools with instruction in urban sociology 
and study of urban education. Students spend 16 weeks in Chicago, 
housed in apartments owned by the University of Chicago and with 
library and cafeteria privileges at the university. Practice teaching is 
divided between two schools serving contrasting social and economic 
areas. There is no extra charge to students selected for the full-credit 
course. 



NURSING 

Monmouth College has a nursing program in cooperation with Chicago 
Wesley Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. Candidates for the pro- 
gram must spend three academic years on the Monmouth campus, earn 
a grade-point average of 2.5 or higher and meet all graduation require- 
ments except the senior residence requirement. 

Students may major in any program offered by Monmouth but must 
take certain courses required by the hospital: chemistry, biology, etc. 
After completing the work at Monmouth, the student enters the School 
of Nursing at Wesley for 36 months. At the end of the professional course 
and the granting of the R.N. degree by the hospital, the candidate will 
be awarded the Bachelor of Arts degree by Monmouth upon recommenda- 
tion of the School of Nursing. 

The hospital, with a bed capacity of 700, affords students an oppor- 
tunity to observe and study a diversity of disease conditions and to 
obtain experience caring for these patients. Wesley is accredited by the 
Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals and approved by the 
American Medical Association. The School of Nursing is approved by 
the Illinois State Department of Registration and Education and accred- 
ited by the National Nursing Accrediting Service of the National League 
for Nursing. Instruction is given both at Wesley and in the laboratories 
and classrooms of Northwestern University Medical School. 



MONMOUTH COLLEGE • MONMOUTH, ILLINOIS 71 

CAREER PREPARATION 

It is generally conceded that a liberal arts education provides the best 
foundation for professional and graduate study. The Monmouth pro- 
gram not only allows the student to concentrate in a field closely re- 
lated to his interest, but also offers him an opportunity to secure a 
broad, general education. 

Most graduate and professional schools now discourage heavy under- 
graduate specialization and emphasize the values of a broadly based 
liberal arts education as a preparation for advanced study. A student 
who enters Monmouth with a well-defined career interest is referred 
to a faculty-member specially qualified to advise students in this field. 
The following comments will be helpful to students who plan careers 
which require advanced study. 

Dentistry. See Medicine below. 

Engineering. See page 68. 

Journalism. After receiving a B.A. degree, students can usually obtain 
an M.A. in journalism after one year in a professional school. Most 
newspaper and magazine editors prefer to employ beginners with ex- 
perience on college publications and a broad liberal arts background. 
Students interested in journalism careers usually concentrate in English, 
social sciences or psychology. The weekly campus newspaper, The 
Oracle; the literary magazine, The Piper; the yearbook, The Ravelings, 
and the campus radio station, WFS, offer ample opportunity for stu- 
dents to gain practical experience. 

Law. The major field for a student planning to enter law school is 
immaterial. In accordance with a statement of policy from the Associa- 
tion of American Law Schools, pre-legal education at Monmouth is 
"education from comprehension and expression in words, for critical 
understanding of human institutions and values, and for creative power 
in thinking . . . The development of these fundamental capacities is 
not the monopoly of any one subject-matter area, department or division." 

Social sciences, Latin, philosophy and psychology are recommended for 
inclusion in the student's undergraduate work. The college pre-law club 
meets regularly to hear representatives from law schools and discuss 
current trends in the field. 

Library Science. After receiving the B.A. degree, students may qualify 
for a library degree with one year of training in a professional school. 
Major field is immaterial. Business and industry have opened new fields 
in specialized library work for students with scientific training. There 
are opportunities for students with an interest in library science to 
work in the college library. 

Medicine. Although most students who plan to enter medicine or 
dentistry major in biology or chemistry, a major in any field is acceptable 
to most medical or dental schools providing certain basic science courses 
are included. Biology majors fulfilling the departmental requirements 
automatically meet entrance requirements for most graduate schools. In 
addition to college graduation requirements, biology majors are required 
to take Biology 101 and 102, 305, to take College Biology 101 and 102. 
Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy, Embryology, Physiology, Seminar and 
Experimental Biology or Research. In related fields of chemistry and 
physics, biology majors must take Elementary Inorganic Chemistry, 



72 MONMOUTH COLLEGE • MONMOUTH, ILLINOIS 

Descriptive Elementary Organic Chemistry, Electrolytic Equilibrium, 
Elementary Analytical Chemistry and General Physics. 

in order to handle the mathematical concepts in the chemistry and 
physics courses listed above, the student needs to have had the equivalent 
of mathematics through calculus. Each student's program is an individual 
matter, carefully planned by the department staff so that the student may 
take full advantage of ever area of study which may be helpful to him. 

Medical Technology. Under a program similar to that for medicine 
and dentistry, students may major in any field providing certain basic 
course requirements are met. Generally, a B.A. degree with a major 
in biology or chemistry is taken. A fifth year at a professional school 
and successful completion of the registry examination will lead to the 
certificate in Medical Technology. 

Ministry. The American Association of Theological Schools recom- 
mends a broad liberal arts background as the best preparation for the 
modern ministry. Concentration in philosophy, religion, history, English, 
sociology or psychology is acceptable and some knowledge of Greek is 
a valuable asset. Monmouth's program for training of church education 
assistants is approved by the United Presbyterian Church Joint Com- 
mittee of Nine. 

The committee notes that the program "has value for students of 
other communions who are preparing for service in the field of Christian 
education." The program includes general liberal arts requirements in 
humanities, social sciences, physical sciences and mathematics and 
14 term courses in education, psychology, religion and music. 

Teaching. Approximately one-third of Monmouth's graduates enter 
careers as elementary school, high school or college teachers. Teacher 
preparation at Monmouth emphasizes mastery of subject matter rather 
than methods and includes extensive practice teaching in the local school 
system in Chicago under the ACM Urban Education program. The 
education department does not offer a field of concentration, but coop- 
erates with other departments in teacher training. Courses meet certifi- 
cation requirements in Illinois and other states, but students planning 
to teach outside Illinois should consult with the education department 
for specific state requirements. 

As a rule, secondary school teachers must be prepared to teach in 
their major field and an additional field for certification. Five-year 
programs leading to a B.A. and M.E. have been instituted in recent years. 

Other Careers. Monmouth also prepares students for careers in foreign 
service, optometry, physical therapy, occupational therapy, secretarial 
positions, social work, veterinarian medicine, and business.

GENERAL INFORMATION 

History 

Monmouth College was founded in 1853 by Presbyterians of Scottish de- 
scent and is affiliated with the United Presbyterian Church, U. S. A. From 
1853 to 1856 the school was a preparatory school for ministers of the As- 
sociate Reformed Presbyterian Church, the church of the founders. The 
college received its charter from the general assembly of the State of Illi- 
nois in 1857. From the beginning, Monmouth has admitted women students 
on equal terms with men and thus is a pioneer in advanced education for 
women. 

During its first 100 years of existence, Monmouth College had five presi- 
dents: Dr. David A. Wallace, Dr. Jackson Burgess McMichael, Dr. S. R. 
Lyons, Dr. Thomas Hanna McMichael and Dr. James Harper Grier. Dr. 
Grier retired in 1952 and was succeeded by Monmouth's current president, 
Dr. Robert Wesson Gibson. 

Control

86 MONMOUTH COLLEGE • MONMOUTH, ILLINOIS 

Transportation 

Monmouth is on the main line of the Chicago, Burhngton and Quincy rail- 
road and is also served by two bus lines. Air travel facilities are 10 miles 
from the campus and U. S. Highways 34 and 67 intersect in the heart of 
the city. 

Health, Counseling and Placement Services 

The Monmouth College student health service operates an infirmary, under 
the supervision of two registered nurses, which provides hospitalization for 
minor disabilities. The services of the two college physicians are available 
at the dispensary, which is open to all students for minor illnesses and 
emergency treatment. Coupled with this is a student insurance plan, the 
cost of which is borne completely by the college. This provides year-round 
coverage, both on and off the campus, for physician's services, hospital 
services and board and room, X-rays and laboratory tests, dental and 
medical care and surgery necessitated by injury or illness. Special cover- 
age includes treatment for Polio. A fully-accredited community hospital 
located two blocks from the campus is also available for hospitalization and 
out-patient care. 

Coimseling services begin with comprehensive testing and interviewing 
during Orientation week. Following this, students choose a faculty adviser 
who assists in selecting a program of courses and advises the student on 
any other problems. In addition to the faculty adviser, the counsel of all 
staff members, including the deans and the college chaplain, is available 
to all students. 

Monmouth's office of student aid and placement assists both students 
and alumni in obtaining employment. The college placement bureau main- 
tains a career library and arranges interviews with company personnel 
representatives and Monmouth students. The office also administers part- 
time campus employment, upper-class scholarships, grants-in-aid and stu- 
dent loans. 

CAMPUS LIFE 

Social. In addition to the all-college social programs directed by the 
student council, other campus activities are sponsored by the 23 special 
interest clubs, 15 honorary organizations, seven service groups and 11 
social groups. The social groups include five national fraternities, four 
national sororities and independent student associations for men and 
women. The new student center, constructed in 1963, is the hub of campus 
social life. It offers dining facilities, conference rooms, a snack bar and 
lounge, game room, music room, postoffice, bookstore, bowling alleys, 
dance room and offices for student groups. 

Student Government. Because enrollment at the college is limited to 
about 950, a proportionately large number of students have an opportunity 
to develop leadership qualities in the many campus organizations.. Various 
governing groups include the student council, student-faculty committee, 
committee on student affairs, student center committee, Association of 
Women Students, interfraternity council, Panhellenic Council and class 
officers. 

Honorary Societies. A limited number of junior and senior students 
earn membership in the campus scholastic fraternity, Sigma Omicron Mu, 
and receive honors at the Honors Convocations held three times yearly. 
Other honorary scholastic fraternities are Alpha Lambda Delta, for fresh- 
men women, and Phi Eta Mu, for freshmen men. Honorary fraternities

room. These include clubs for chemistry, music, history, dramatics, fo- 
rensics, international relations, dance, physical education, politics, pre- 
law, religion, rifle, sociology, Spanish and athletics.

ience in writing, editing, reporting, advertising, layout, printing and broad- 
casting through work on the Oracle, campus weekly newspaper; Ravelings, 
student yearbook; Piper, literary annual; and WFS, campus radio station. 

Athletics. All students may participate in the college's diversified intra- 
mural and intercollegiate athletic program. At the intercollegiate level, 
Monmouth competes in nine varsity sports as a member of the Midwest 
Collegiate Athletic Conference. 

Confrontation Outside the Classroom. A program of "confrontation out- 
side the classroom," designed to relate classroom studies to current topics 
and practices, includes the concert-lecture series, student-faculty colloquia, 
student convocations and chapels, visiting lecturers and performers, Sun- 
day evening discussions, biennial Liberal Arts Festival and placing of
